A Little Post


Hello, Dear Ones!
I've missed you all so much and wanted to thank you for your kindness to me on my blog and on Facebook on the passing of my mother.
We had her funeral here in Galveston at the little chapel where she lived at the retirement home.
They were so sweet and held a reception afterwards for us and the friends who attended.
Most of you know our daughter and our new little grandbaby, Camp, flew down to be with us.
Mother was taken to Odessa and we had a graveside service there. I really didn't think anyone would be at the cemetery since she had been here in Galveston for almost 16 years but so many of her old church friends were there and it just blessed my heart! 
I'm a Christian and I'm not very preachy on my blog ~ but I do love to share joy here.
But one thing I want to say, Dear Ones, is this ~ no matter how kind you are, sweet you are, rich you are ~ the only thing that really matters in this life is how you respond to Jesus. He is the Son of God, died for our sins and offers salvation to us so when we die we can be with Him in Heaven.
We can't wait until we die to do this. We have to make the decision to accept Him as our Savior now.
I love you all and want to see you in Heaven one day. I pray you'll be there.

Okay...I'm down from my pulpit now! ;)
Just wanted to share a little Falling around in the dining room that I've done and it seems like months ago.


 Just easy and simple.


 I've never put my book page roses wreath in here and I think it may stay awhile.

 Now over to the Little Richard side.
Just being simple in the dining room this year.
I've seen so many of your beautiful displays inside your homes and out ~ gorgeous!

I'll probably post sporadically for a while as we've got lots to do but don't give up on me.

I'm sending my love....

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

This Is Dedicated To The One I Love

While I'm far away from you my baby
I know it's hard for you my baby
Because it's hard for me my baby
And the darkest hour is just before dawn
Each night before you go to bed my baby
Whisper a little prayer for me my baby
And tell all the stars above
This is dedicated to the one I love
(love can never be exactly like we want it to be)
I could be satisfied knowing you love me
(and there's one thing I want you to do especially for me)
And it's something that everybody needs
While I'm far away from you my baby
Whisper a little prayer for me my baby
Because it's hard for me my baby
And the darkest hour is just before dawn
If there's one thing I want you to do especially for me
Then it's something that everybody needs
Each night before you go to bed my baby
Whisper a little prayer for me my baby
And tell all the stars above
This is dedicated to the one I love
This is dedicated to the one I love
This is dedicated to the one I love
This is dedicated to the one I love
